CC of San Francisco (Calif.) quarterback Darius Bell is ever so close to being out of the Bay and into L.A.

Bell said he expects to be signing with UCLA at the end of the week.

"I will be graduating on May 29th and so I expect to sign on that day as well or as soon as final grades come out, which will be sometime this week," said Bell. "I can't sign until I officially get my A.A., so by the end of the week, I should sign."

Once Bell signs, he plans to be in Westwood in June.

"I would enroll in summer, I believe in mid-June, when summer school begins, and then I'd have four years to play three," said Bell. "According to the coaching staff, I should be squared away with admissions pending graduation.

Bell, though, is remaining cautiously optimistic.

"I will know for sure this week, but I don't want to count my eggs before I know," said Bell. "I've been talking with Coach (Norm) Chow a lot though. I should be a Bruin by Sunday."
